Piers Morgan reveals how he would solve Brexit – ‘Call EU’s BLUFF and send FARAGE’
The Good Morning Britain host grew increasingly frustrated with Remainer guest Kevin Maguire’s claims that parts of Brexit were “undeliverable”. Mr Morgan blasted back: “This is what the Remoaners always say. It’s undeliverable because we have a Remainer Prime Minister and a three-quarter Remain parliament.
“That’s why it’s undeliverable.”
The TV veteran went on to explain what he would do if it fell to him to deliver Brexit.
He said: “If I was Boris Johnson and I won the election to run the party and the country, I would immediately go straight to no deal.
“I’d call everyone’s bluff.
“No deal – bang. That’s where we’re going, we’re leaving.
“Then you watch. You watch what happens when you actually negotiate hardball.”
He added that he would send Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage “straight over” to the EU to conduct the negotiations.
Meanwhile, Theresa May is set to begin discussions with senior ministers on her proposed new “bold offer” to MPs in a final attempt to get her Brexit deal through Parliament.
The weekly meeting of the Cabinet on Tuesday is expected to sign off on a package of measures to be included in the forthcoming Withdrawal Agreement Bill (WAB) aimed at winning cross-party support.
However, there was widespread scepticism at Westminster that it will fare any better than her three previous failed attempts to get the Commons to pass the deal.
Following the collapse last week of cross-party talks with Labour aimed at reaching a common approach, Jeremy Corbyn said he had not yet seen anything new that would persuade him to support it.
It comes at the start of what looks likely to be another torrid week for the Prime Minister with the Conservatives braced for a hammering at the hands of Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party in the European elections on Thursday.
One weekend poll put them in a humiliating fifth place behind the Greens, with the results likely to exacerbate frustration in the party at the failure to leave the EU in March as planned.
Labour – which has been criticised for facing both ways on a second referendum – is also expecting a difficult result with the same poll showing them in third place behind the Liberal Democrats.
A Government source said the Withdrawal Agreement Bill – which is needed to ratify the deal with Brussels – would include new measures on protecting workers’ rights, an issue where agreement with Labour was said to have been close.
However, the source made clear the package would not just be aimed at Labour MPs but would seek to secure the widest possible support across the Commons.
It is expected to include provisions on future trade arrangements with the EU, on environmental protection, and on Northern Ireland, including the use of technology to avoid the need for border controls with the Republic.
Ministers will also consider whether to put any of the alternative approaches to indicative votes in the Commons to establish which, if any, can command a majority.
